Authorities Say Girl Attacked by Two Dogs in New Athens
Authorities say the girl and a friend were walking when Dallas Hill's dogs approached, sniffed them and suddenly attacked. A neighbor came to the girl's rescue with a baseball bat. The girl suffered bite marks on her leg, back and chest.
Investigators say one of the dogs is a trained police dog, although neither dog works for New Athens police. Hill doesn't have a listed home telephone number and couldn't be reached for comment Friday.
